    The Hosta Guacamole is one of those rare and hard to find fragrant hostas. Most Hostas have little to no scent but this one has a very strong fragrance and very large white flowers. All fragrant Hostas are from the Hosta plantaginea line. This Hosta plant can also handle quite a bit of sun which is nice for those of use that can find little shade in the garden. This is a variegated hosta with a lighter yellow green base and darker green along the outer edges of the leaves. The leaves are heart shaped with a nice ribbing that really brings sets of the colors this plant. The coloration of this plant is extremely unique and very attractive and in combination with the fragrant flowers it is almost impossible not to covet it. This hardy perennial plant can be grown in zones 3-9. The size of this plant is 24in. high x 30in. wide not huge but a good sized plant. This plant will fit into a smaller garden that the huge hosta plants will not fit into.

Monkshood and hosta. Hardy to Zone 2, monkshood is a good alternative to hollyhocks or foxgloves in a less-forgiving climate. Its dark blue blooms, which appear on tall stalks from mid-summer to early fall, are attractive to bees and butterflies. Monkshood prefers moist, well drained soil in full sun and would make an excellent pairing with veronica or lady's mantle. Read more:
